The Max Bell School's Centre for Media, Technology and Democracy is thrilled to announce that Supriya Dwivedi will be joining the Centre as its Director of Policy & Engagement.

Supriya became personally invested in combating misinformation and disinformation through her experience as the host of a morning show on a Toronto talk radio station. Mis and disinformation regularly found its way onto the airwaves, and it directly contributed to the volume and level of vitriolic threats Supriya received. After a particularly vile threat that targeted her daughter, Supriya resigned.

Supriya also has extensive experience in government relations and public affairs, where her work has largely focused on providing strategic counsel to both international and Canadian clients on public affairs campaigns at all levels of government, maintaining and building stakeholder relationships, and assessing the policy implications of legislation within the Canadian regulatory framework. 

Supriya has a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) from McGill University, as well as civil law (LL.B.) and common law (J.D.) degrees from Université de Montréal. She is a highly sought-after media commentator, appearing weekly on CBC’s Power & Politics and writing regularly for the Toronto Star and the National Observer as a contributing political columnist.

When she’s not busy with work, Supriya enjoys quoting random lines from The Simpsons (seasons 3-8), almost always out of context. You can follow her on Twitter @supriyadwivedi.
